We’ve never thought about the music industry being particularly male-dominated (although perhaps behind the scenes it is!), bit Bjork is opening up about how difficult it was for her to actually make it in music, considering it’s such a “boy’s club,” as she puts it.

She recently told the Sydney Morning Herald,

“The fact I’m a woman and can do what I do is unique, really.”

And although she considered¬†herself to be lucky, she still admits to “hitting walls” in the industry.

What’s really macho, for example, is music journalism. It’s really like a boy’s club. They like music that is… well, a lot of it is for boys.”

We’re super disappointed to here that even a music veteran like Bjork finds it difficult to break through the industry. If Bjork can’t make it work, then who can?!
